    The sad part, is that the people that make these arguments aren't the least bit embarrassed to do so.

    The sad part is when people have no real political or economical response and just insult someone instead

    I see that you did not address my accusation of your gross lack of understanding of race and racism. Once you properly do that, we can talk.

    Great question! But would you listen to it if I obliged? Do you have evidence that you have listened to uncomfortable talks about race and racism?

    Thats good. The constitutionality of the "war on drugs" is a separate issue.

    You blame racist policies. Racism is a conscious and deliberate act. If a policy is racist, then it is intended to target a racial group.

    Here's another fact that kills your argument: there are as many cops shot in the line of duty as their are black folks shot by cops.

    However, even the incomplete figures gathered by the government tell us that Medved could be partially correct and still ignore a huge piece of the picture. Yes, more whites than blacks die as a result of an encounter with police, but whites also represent a much bigger chunk of the total population.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keeps data on fatal injuries from 1999 to 2011 and one category is homicides by legal intervention. The term "legal intervention" covers any situation when a person dies at the hands of anyone authorized to use deadly force in the line of duty.

    Over the span of more than a decade, 2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks. In that respect, Medved is correct.

    However, Brian Forst, a professor in the Department of Justice, Law and Criminology at American University, said this difference is predictable.

    "More whites are killed by the police than blacks primarily because whites outnumber blacks in the general population by more than five to one," Forst said. The country is about 63 percent white and 12 percent black.

    FYI, police officers are not at the top of dangerous occupations.

    Nothing about that supports your argument.
